The 2nd International Conference on Language Documentation and
Conservation (ICLDC), 'Strategies for Moving Forward,' will be held
February 11-13, 2011, at the Hawai'i Imin International Conference Center
on the University of Hawai'i at Manoa campus. Two days of optional
technical training workshops will precede the conference (Feb. 9-10). An
optional Hilo Field Study (on the Big Island of Hawai'i) to visit Hawaiian
language revitalization programs in action will immediately follow the
conference (Feb. 14-15).
The 1st ICLDC, with its theme 'Supporting Small Languages Together,'
underscored the need for communities, linguists, and other academics to
work in close collaboration. The theme of the 2nd ICLDC is 'Strategies for
Moving Forward.' We aim to build on the strong momentum created at the
1st ICLDC and to discuss research and revitalization approaches yielding
rich, accessible records which can benefit both the field of language
documentation and speech communities. We hope you will join us.
The Call for Proposals deadline is August 31, 2010.
